We just heard today that our cousin Ron has passed away, and want to convey our deepest sympathy to Elizabeth, Ron's children, Jodi, Joe and Jeff, and all of the grandchildren. Whenever we would see Ron in Ohio, or talk on the phone (which was not often enough), we always found things to laugh about and reminisce. We enjoyed seeing and spending time with our "Cugino". He was a wonderful man, and will be missed.

Good bye my good friend I will miss you and the times we had together, both good and bad. Children, pray for Ron, Doug, and John every day.They will be missed, but remember, they are with you every day. I occasionally saw Ron at the Giant Eagle, and when we did, it was at least an hour before we split. He would fill me in on everything and everyone. He truly loves all of you and is proud of each and all of you. My prayers will be with all of you as you go through life, wishing you the best of everything.
